What if I just need one specific tax question answered?
Questions are often more complex than they seem. For example, what entity should I use for my business or investing? Or, is XYZ a good investment? While these questions seem simple on the surface, they can have a huge impact on your overall strategy – one that can be difficult and costly to undo. For this reason, it is our policy to not answer one-off questions. Providing a generic answer can be detrimental to any situation. We want to gain a better understanding of the whole picture.
